For its part, Salta offers a hike through the Cuesta del Obispo called  Caminando en las Nubes  because its route reaches the top of Cerro Torreón at 3100 meters above sea level, as well as visiting archaeological sites and observing flora and fauna wildlife.

Formosa has another must-see experience knowing its extensive wetland with as much history as beautiful birds and wildlife to meet on the canoe ride on  Bañado La Estrella. 

The essential thing:  to enjoy the starry sky and know the behavior of birds, the proposal is a night walk in the Impenetrable Chaqueño. In Corrientes, a horseback ride through the Iberá Esteros leads us to the knowledge of the Carlos Pellegrini colony and to enter a region of estuos and palm groves. Then spend the night in an inn in the style of an old cortijo Correntino, to enjoy the typical gastronomy and the panoramic view from the pier de los Esteros del Iberá.

Among the experiences on the Litoral, something completely different in the jungle is to move in  Stand Up Paddle along the streams  and the Uruguay River in El Soberbio. It seems tempting to combine it with hiking, kayaking or cycling and camping in the Yaboty Biosphere Reserve and Don Otto Reserve in El Dorado.

And for those who want to be fishermen for a day,  Puerto Almanza , an authentic village of Tierra del Fuego, offers to sail in gomons on the Beagle Channel for fishing, which can then be taste. during a gourmet meal.

In addition, a kayak expedition along the Colorado River and a  trekking tour in Payunia Pampeana , an adventure that can last from 10 to 12 days or short trips of 3 days. Here you visit the  Cavern of Halada , a 250 m long lava tunnel.
